Join Amanda Henderson and Todd Legler from Micron to learn about LPDDR4 and LPDDR5 tech and trends.  Amanda manages Micron’s Embedded Business Unit covering LPDDR4, LPDDR5, and upcoming LPDDR6. She'll go over DRAM market trends related to automotive,  industrial medical multi-use (IMM), and consumer adoption.   Todd is a Sr. Application Engineer supporting LPDDR4 and Multi-Chip Package memories, driving application strategies for Micron's Embedded Business Unit.   He'll walk you through LPDDR4 basic functions such as commands, truth tables, flexible access with dual channel, burst length frequency, On the Fly Frequency Switching, and LVSTL (Low Voltage Swing Terminated Logic).  You'll learn the fundamentals of memory selection such as key questions to ask, what are your application specific needs, how to make high performance DRAM comparisons.   You'll also learn how LPPDR4 is used in SBCs such as the Raspberry Pi 4 8GB and to enhance your automotive experience through your heads-up display, infotainment, and immersive, software defined cockpit.  Finally, you'll learn about Micron's LPDDR5/LPDDR5x; the difference between LPDDR5 and LPDDR4x; and LPDDR5 embedded application adoption in automotive (autonomous vehicles, advanced driver-assisted systems, safety features, in-vehicle infotainment), industrial (complex AI/AR/VR workloads, growing sensor data, intelligent edge devices, drones), and consumer products (Next-gen DSLR cameras, AI interactive commerce, untethered VR Drives, AR/VR medical rehabilitation).image


LPDDR4 was designed to increase memory speed in mobile computing devices such as smartphones, tablets, ultra-thin notebooks, and SBCs such as the Raspberry Pi.  The Raspberry Pi’s combination of performance, profile and price are made possible by their long relationship with Micron, whose memory solutions have been a key part of their products for years.   For Raspberry Pi4, Micron provides the memory supporting the 16Gb and 32Gb LPDDR4 and is — for a third generation of Pi – Raspberry Pi’s supplier of choice.   During this presentation you are encouraged to ask questions for a chance to win one of five Raspberry Pi 4s!


What You’ll Learn By Attending:


  • General Market as well as Embedded Market adoption trends
  • Application examples
  • LPDDR4 basic functions
  • Memory selection fundamentals
  • Brief introduction to LPDDR5 noting what is different from LPDDR4





Micron has been instrumental in leading the definition and adoption of LPDDR4, meeting consumer demands for faster boot and loading times, while fitting within the tight power constraints of the mobile platform. Micron’s Automotive LPDDR4 solutions enable next-generation automotive applications. The faster I/O rate delivers speeds up to 3200 Mb/s which supports displays with up to 4K resolution with 3D graphics in automotive infotainment systems, in addition to supporting the requisite memory bandwidth associated with compute intensive SOCs for advanced ADAS capabilities which address collision avoidance and enable safer driving.


Micron offers one of the industry’s broadest LPDRAM portfolios, featuring our industry-leading LPDDR4 and cutting-edge LPDDR5. Our wide array of options helps you choose the best balance of features for your design.
